    How's that NV3500 holding up? I swapped a 6.0L in front of mine at 150k miles and was always afraid of it giving up, never did though. With the stout pressure plate I had on it, it kept breaking slave cylinders, cracking the housings! Had any trouble with that? I think I put 5 or 6 slaves in before I went to a t400. I just remember with 3.42's it would go from 25-115 in 3rd!

    Haven't had a bit of trouble with it. So many told me I'd turn it into a box of marbles. I've tried. I haven't. It just drives like a chill bus trans.

    these are the same truck - first video was after he did a 4.3 -> 454 swap, and the 2nd is after he swapped the 454 for an 8.1
    bone stock NV3500 & he drives like that all the time. he added a big turbo to it a couple years ago & all's still well.
